2009 Sl63

At the dealership while picking up the ML after an "A" service was performed.

Car was being prepped for the showroom.

One salesman quipped "It looks like the batmobile!"...I tend to agree!

Took these pics with my cell phone:

Nice, but it should be an SL65 AMG.

And I thought you were going to say you thought it looked like a 90's vintage Toyota Supra.

For $70k more AMG will happily sell you one!

Sweet! I love the new SL front, it looks really evil in person. MB is getting away from curvy cars and going to some really chiseled aggressive looking designs.

The new S class is the best one they have made since the W140.

The AMG Gullwing supercar, replacement for the McLaren, will be the most "batmobile-like" car in MB history.

I still rather have one of these, they hold there value much better as well. In 5 years that AMG will be worth $60k, the 540k will still demand several million, maybe a lot more.

I PDI'd one of those last week, a SL550 anyways, still quite fun and I love the face lift, it looks so much better now. There's a few SL63's and I think a 65 knocking around here somewhere on the lot.
